Ryan thrust into central Republican role

Paul Ryan lost his bid for the vice-presidency, but the conservative congressman from Wisconsin returned to Washington as a potential game-changer in the tense negotiations over the fiscal cliff.

John Boehner is his party’s chief negotiator in talks between Republicans and Barack Obama in the White House over a budget deal. But Mr Ryan’s public support or rejection of any compromise reached by Mr Boehner and the president will be key to a deal passing muster with rank and file members.

Mr Ryan has maintained his influence among the conservative base of Republicans in the House, many of whom view defeat in the presidential election as a consequence of the Republican ticket not being conservative enough.

“I think he is probably the most powerful person you haven’t heard anything from,” says Chris Krueger, an analyst at Guggenheim Securities.

6. Locking - not Latest Breaking News

This is an analysis article, looking at Ryan's general position, and speculation about what he might do, or the stances he might take. It would be better in Politics 2012, or GD. Thanks for your understanding.
